Today’s Daily Photo Phix comes to us from 2 Guys Photo featured photographer, Prentis Drew (to learn more about Prentis, click here). Here’s an additional image from Prentis (two versions provided – see his’ note below):
I just spent a few days on Shaw Island in the San Juan Islands of Washington State. It is pretty far from any cities so I tried my hand at some night photography. The “Stars 2” shot (second image above) was straight up with a 10.5mm fisheye on my D90 and a minute and a half exposure. I was in a circle of trees which framed the shot. Stars (bottom image) was boosted in brightness and saturation to show the passing satellite although it is less appealing as a photograph to my eye.
The other shot (top) was almost in complete darkness but with an 8 second exposure the residual sunlight gave a nice color to the sky and a glass quality to the water.
What a peaceful place Shaw Island is.
Thank you, Prentis. What a peaceful place… and I love the top image…
